Iran’s Rouhani: Oil sector on frontline of economic war
Tehran, The enemies are waging psychological and economic war on Iran, and the oil, gas and petrochemical sectors at the frontline of war, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday.
'The enemies are inflicting hardships on Iranians, but they would not be able to impose their hegemony on the people,' he said at the inauguration ceremony of some major petrochemical projects in southern Iran.
Each new inaugurated project is a step for Iran's dignity, he said.
President Rouhani inaugurated three major economic projects in southern Province of Bushehr on Tuesday.
The Iranian president also called for exporting value added products instead of raw material.
The US has re-imposed sanctions on Iran after withdrawing from the nuclear deal.
Washington has also pressed its allies for halting oil imports from Iran.
